Dr. Kay Scarpetta returns to her old office in the 13th thriller to star the fan-favorite medical examiner. Five years ago, Scarpetta was fired from her position as Chief Medical Examiner of Richmond, Virginia. Currently based in Florida, she travels back to Richmond when her not-terribly-effective replacement, Dr. Joel Marcus, asks her to assist him in understanding why a teenage girl has apparently died of flu.
Author Bio
Patricia Cornwell
Patricia Cornwell is no stranger to the morgue. In researching her often violent suspense novels, she ensures authenticity in her work by frequently accompanying medical examiners as they perform autopsies. Also contributing to the accuracy of her novels is her experience working as a crime reporter, and as a records auditor in the Richmond, Virginia medical examiner's office. Cornwell exploded onto the mystery scene in 1990 with "Post Mortem", one of the most critically acclaimed debuts ever, and the first novel to win an Edgar Award, Anthony Award, Macavity Award and the John Creasey Award all in one year. Cornwell's initial inspiration to write came from her close neighbor and friend, Ruth Bell Graham, the wife of evangelist Billy Graham. Cornwell's first book, a biography of Graham, was published in 1983. Ironically the book caused a rift in their relationship, but Cornwell followed it with a series of mysteries that would make her famous and wildly successful.
